Feeding the scrum...

Av ricardo rodriguez - 3 januari 2008 15:19


The scrum-half is the player who gets things going in the scrum.


It is their job to feed the ball into the scrum for the hooker to strike back to the number eight.


The scrum-half can roll the ball in from either the left-hand side or the right-hand side of the scrum.


The scrum-half must then not handle the ball until it has come out of the scrum.


The six other backs must be at least five metres behind the off-side line running through the hindmost foot of the last forward in the scrum.


If they are not, the referee will penalise the offending team.



Hooking the ball


When it comes to scrums, the hooker is the player with all the responsibility and pressure.


Their job is to strike the ball back to the number 8 once the scrum-half has fed the ball into the scrum.


This is not as easy as it sounds.

Why? Because the opposition's hooker is trying to steal the ball from you.

Plus you've got eight huge forwards on the other side trying to push you off the ball.


The hooker is the only player in the scrum who can raise their feet - otherwise they would never be able to strike the ball.


However, no other player in the scrum is allowed to handle the ball until the ball is free - not even the hooker.


When is a scrum ended?


A scrum is finished when the ball has come out of the scrum.

Once it has, then the opposition scrum-half can tackle their opposite number for the ball.


But in some situations the number 8 may dribble with the ball, keeping it in the scrum.

This means the opposing scrum-half cannot get their hands on the ball because it's still in the scrum.


This often happens when the team in possession have an attacking scrum near their opponent's try line.


RETAKING A SCRUM

The referee is in charge on the pitch and if he's not happy with a scrum, he can order it to be re-taken again when:

· The scrum has rotated 90 degrees

· The scrum has collapsed before the ball has been fed or before the ball has come out

· The ball does not come out quick enough
